Why it is important to be in constant contact with our inner child

These stories mostly coincide with each other and we accept them as true. However, we do not feel that they really have much to do with us.

At some point in life we ​​get a sense of where we came from when we were born. These are the moments when we feel some vague feelings in certain situations.

We can’t even give them a name, we feel them somewhere in the body. If we move backwards from the present moment, if we move from it to the moment when we first felt that feeling, the path leads us to the earliest childhood.

At a time when we didn’t even have words for feelings. Then we realize that it is actually us. Whatever happens later, no matter how much new knowledge and skills we adopt, no matter how much we change physically, we know that we are actually the same.

This part of the personality is in us all our lives. It’s our childhood part. The basic reactions to life are in it. Fear, sadness, joy. If we go further back we will feel one feeling that we know is intrinsically connected to who we are.

If we deal with the personality of artists, we will see that their creativity dates back to childhood. We will realize that we also had that creativity, and yet, not all of us became artists.

We all had creativity, because in the period of childhood, we feel the need to understand the world from our being and to give it some meaning. This can be seen in children’s play. The game has its purpose in personality development.

Through it, the child adopts what comes from the outside world in his own way. There is a root of spontaneity and creativity, an independent and original response to life.

During growing up and development, we begin to acquire a lot of knowledge, go through many situations and make contacts with many people. Our reactions to all this become many feelings. Let’s learn that some reactions to life are good for us and some aren’t. We adopt what we are taught because it is good for us.

We learn the ways that allow us to do that. We behave in a certain way. Our reaction to life is still ours, but it is not original. This is also good, because our original reaction is not sufficiently adapted to the environment.

However, it is good if we feel our original reaction, that is, if we are in contact with our inner child. That way we will not feel alienated from ourselves.

The universality of art comes from the fact that it is connected with what is essential in us. Works of art come from the original answer to life. Any kind of art for someone to do, music, dance, painting, sculpture, film, is an expression of that essence. Essentially, we are energy beings. That basic energy connects us to others.

That is why works of art, which are an expression of that, move us. Let us feel ourselves in them, let us feel others, let us feel our essence and our connection with others. Contact with art can be experienced as a return to oneself.

During their lives, artists also acquire a lot of knowledge, skills, and adapt to the world. They have a mostly ordinary life. If it’s unusual, it doesn’t have to be related to being an artist.

Even non-artists can have an unusual life. What distinguishes them from others is not only the contact with their own inner child (others have this, to a greater or lesser extent – it is good if it is bigger, if we are more aware of this part of ourselves). nor do they possess talent.

The very word talent refers to a kind of gift, something that is not necessary, but it is precious. This can manifest as a certain energy, a charge, which leads them to creativity. Through creativity, they embody their human essence.

When we find ourselves in front of a work of art, if we allow ourselves to just be aware of it, without thinking, drawing conclusions, we can feel that essence. That experience makes us feel ourselves.

We don’t have to go to exhibitions and concerts to get in touch with art, although that is one of the better ways.

We will recognize art anywhere if it exists. We will not recognize her if we have forgotten our inner child. It is somewhere in us and it needs attention. If we focus, pay attention to him, it’s like we’re a good parent to ourselves.

There are a lot of us in our experience of the situation from the childhood when our parents were absent, and we did not know why and whether we would see them again. Nobody explained it to us. Or we didn’t realize it. When we pay attention to our inner child, it is similar to the feeling we had when our parents returned, and everything was fine again and made sense.

Contact with art can be useful in this. Artists create because it means something to them, they look for a way to themselves, they express themselves and come back to themselves both with the help of their work, and with the help of the answers and reactions of those who are in contact with their work.
